PHOTO by: JANN whaley thomas boyd. uNMA^kCiisIc; vraculas sot pc^nIer Dancer-turned-designer Thomas Boyd made a name for himself through set production for the Houston Ballet. In 1985, Boyd assumed the position as Production Managerforthe ballet company after years of experience as a dancer. *l had been involved with production all along. I actually had art training before dance training. I was offered the job as production manager, and I learned on-the- job/' said Boyd. Though production seemed different than the art of dance, key elements existed that bonded the two areas of the ballet. *l keep in mind the performer's needs...I create environments performers feel comfortable in, [environments] as practical as they are in trying to solve aesthetic problems," Boyd said. In fact, Boyd considered himself a builder by nature, and said that if he was not set designing, he would be "working with his hands" and living near water. Boyd felt he overcame the feat of set design and contributed to the needs of performers while enhancing the art in a meaningful way. *l helped people realize their vision. The choreographer has a vision. The patron, though he may not be aware, has a vision. I bridge the gap between what the choreographer wants to say and what the patron needs to hear, " said Boyd. 'That's what theater is. It's trying to meet somewhere on the footlights." In art, either production or dance, passion needed to be present for the creater or performer to continue. Boyd still felt a connection to the theater and "hopes to do this for a few more years at least." UL < LU Cl. < I CL LU O ■M
